That said, the more common playback problem is due to fingerprints or cruft on the disc itself. See if problem discs need cleaning.
Don't smoke, the player's nowhere near the kitchen, don't use candles, don't have a fireplace. We do get a lot of dust here, but I do my best to keep my gear clean.
Discs have all been new out of the package, nothing visible on the disc. Take them out, clean them thoroughly, still hitching. Very odd. I actually returned Tintin because I thought maybe it was a defective disc, but I'm having too many other discs do the same thing.
We'll see what Oppo says. Hopefully, it's a quick fix... 'cause the part of me that hates being without gear is already saying, "Y'know, this is a good excuse to buy the BDP-93..."
